Anterior Cruciate Ligament surgery

Ligament that connects your thigh-bone to the shin-bone is called the anterior cruciate ligament. It is a stabilizing ligament that helps to hold your bones together. It unravels like a rope when it is torn and will not heal on its own. ACL surgery or reconstruction surgery is done in order to recover the normal functioning of the ACL after damage.

During the procedure, the injured ligament will reconstruct through arthroscopic surgery. Various kinds of tissues are used to reconstruct the ACL. The most common among them involves harvesting the central third of patellar tendon with a bone block at each of the tendon graft. The other different types of ACL reconstruction techniques are:

  • Patellar Tendon graft
  • Hamstring Tendon graft
  • Quadriceps Tendon graft
  • Allograft
  • Synthetic Grafts
  • Xenografts
  • Bioengineering and Gene Manipulation

All these procedures are done according to the requirements of the patient and choice of the doctor. All are proven procedures which have already marked their success.
